Hello friends! What’s new this week? Not much ’round these parts. Just getting back to normal after several weeks where one or both of Chet and I were traveling. It feels good to get some extra work done and to give this blog some love (beyond just posting on Wednesdays, which was all I managed to squeak out last week). We also managed a trip to the beach on Saturday for some seaside nachos and several hours of sunbathing. (My nose and forehead got a lil pink. Resolved: Start upping my SPF game and/or get a really obnoxious beach hat.) And along with my love of pocket letters, I’ve been dipping my toes in planner decorating. I just can’t stop thinking about paper-craftin’, y’all. It is a problem! Ok, I think that’s everything from around these parts, now onto the links…
